Alpe d'Huez Ski Transfers
What type of ski transfer do I need to get to Alpe d'Huez?
Located in the heart of the Oisans region in the Alps, Alpe d’Huez is one of the most thriving resorts in the area. From its high glacier at 3,300 meters allowing for year-round skiing, to its reputation as the 'l'Isle du Soleil' which translates into Island in the Sun, due to its sunny slopes, Alpe d’Huez is also one of the Alps most inviting ski resorts. Alpe d’Huez is a high altitude resort that forms part of the Grand Domaine ski area. There are no trains or flights directly connecting the ski resort or the area. A ski transfer is perhaps the most used form of accessing Alpe d’Huez. At Erna Low you can select from a few transfer options to get to Alpe d’Huez for your dream ski holiday. A private transfer is perhaps one of the most opted for and is the best option for people looking to travel privately and exclusively within their family bubble; it is essentially a complete hire service where one person or group of travellers has the car to themselves and are driven up to their accommodation. A shared transfer can also be arranged for people visiting Alpe d’Huez and are happy to share a transfer vehicle with other visitors to the resort who will be arriving at the airport on the same day but at a different time. It is a less expensive option and also a fantastic opportunity to meet new people and make new friends who share the same passion for skiing.
What airports can I transfer from to get to Alpe d'Huez?
Transfer to Alpe d’Huez can be arranged from most areas in the Alps, however, the four closest airports to Alpe d’Huez and the Grand Domaine ski area are Geneva International airport, Chambéry Aix-les-Bains Airport (more commonly known as Chambéry Airport ), Grenoble Alpes Isère airport ( commonly referred to as Grenoble airport) and the Saint-Exupéry airport, also known more regularly as Lyon airport. Grenoble airport and Chambery airport are closer in proximity to Alpe d’Huez and have the shortest drives to the resort. If you were flying in locally from France, either of these would be a great option. However, due to the size and low profile of both airports, they do not have a lot of international flight connections making it difficult to access from abroad. Flying in from overseas? Geneva airport is your best option and the most selected route of all the options due not only to its connections but its frequency of arrival flights. As such, this makes Geneva to Alpe d’Huez a much more selected transfer option overall. Transfers from private owned and non commercial airports can also be arranged.
